First impressions with the Makerbot Replicator 2

The Makerbot Replicator 2 after startup. A working screw with nut. My first experiences with the Makerbot Replicator 2 are mixed.

The new webdesign

Today the website received the new 2012 design. The website is based on the wisy CMS which is the Content Management System of 3We GmbH. By this the new website should be easier and faster to maintain and put new content on it. Additional to the new design, the website has a few new Video-Tutorials and some additional informations about A:M, PW3d and connected areas of interest. Have fun exploring it! *Fuchur*

Small Intro of A:M

A small but very nice intro to A:M is given at Create-IT-NI. Have a look: Link to article

If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
